    • PALMTALK PERVERT   02/01/2016

      Just a heads up to everybody - there is a "pervert" trying to crash PalmTalk with vulgar language and discussions of having sex with palms. It may be coincidence, but someone also called a palm seller I know and started asking him questions about "having sex with palms."  I have a possible name and location. His IP was from San Diego Cox and it geolocated to around Mesa College. I won't divulge anything else because sometimes this type of information is not accurate. But I do have a name and address. But I just wanted everyone to know, and ask that you inform me if you come across any information, or see anything that should not be on PT.

Living Fossils

6 posts in this topic

I want to start a small new collection with unusual plants in old groups.

Here's a quick list of things--I'll probably add more later on--that I have been reading about...

  • Gnetum
  • Ascarina, Sarcandra, Chloranthus
  • Amborella
  • Agathis
  • Illicium
  • Nageia (Podocarpus) nagi
  • Wollemia (good luck!)
  • Phyllocladus
  • other odd conifers

Some of these are pretty common in horticulture but I hope to find more sources. Others seem to have been around the trade only sporadically.

I'm also shopping around for cycads, especially smaller Zamia species, and I might also like to find more unusual Equisetum.

I am mainly growing these as potted specimens for the patio and as houseplants.

I'd really appreciate any offers or leads that you might have.

Thanks for considering this!
